About

Connecting and empowering Christian child and family professionals.

WHY 1:27?

Network 1:27, formerly known as Christian Child and Family Services Association (CCFSA), represents programs across the country that support children and their families with counseling, residential care, family foster care, maternity, adoption services and much more. We are an outreach Network for the Churches of Christ.

Agencies with the Network address the needs of children and families by providing many services across the nation. Our agencies provide residential
child care and treatments services, family foster care, domestic and international adoptions, counseling for families, marriage, and individuals, maternity care services and medical care. Some Network agencies also offer pregnancy counseling, emergency shelters, educational schools for K-12, independent living programs and family life enrichment.

GENESIS 1:27

So God created
mankind in his own image,
in the image of God he created them;
male and female he created them. (NIV)

1 SAMUEL 1:27

I prayed for the child,
and the Lord has granted me
what I asked of him. (NIV)

JAMES 1:27

Religion that God our Father accepts
as pure and faultless is this:
to look after orphans
and widows in the distress
and to keep oneself from being polluted
by the world.(NIV)
